Got a curious young scientist on your holiday gift list? Delight them with Science Kits from the Casper Planetarium. The Green Rocket kit lets them use a recycled magazine and 2 plastic bottles to blast a paper rocket up to 80 feet in the air. Build a 5-inch generator that can power an LED light with the Windmill Generator kit. Learn to extract salt from sea water with the Clean Water Science kit. Create your own star projector with the Night Sky Projection Kit. And those are just a few of the kits available.
Science kits are intended for kids 8 and older, and are priced from $13 to $20 in the Planetarium Gift Shop. (Open Monday – Friday from 9 am to 5 pm; cash and checks welcome, but we can’t accept cards.)
